CLINTON, S.C. (AP) - Eric Washington led four Presbyterian players in double figures with 13 points as the Blue Hose snapped a two-game losing streak and beat Gardner-Webb 57-54 in Big South Conference action Wednesday night.

Presbyterian (6-18, 3-7) trailed 49-41 with 9 minutes left, but rebounded with a 14-3 run, taking a decisive 53-52 lead on Joshua Clyburn's jumper with 2:41 remaining.

Washington added five assists while Jordan Downing had 11 points and Ryan McTavish and Khalid Mutakabbir had 10 each.
